Our fully equipped lab classrooms give basic sciences students hands-on experience with research tools and techniques.
We have 10 microbiology and pathology labs and six neurology and
histology labs, as well as a number of interdisciplinary and
clinical lab sciences facilities. Students learn to perform a
variety of fundamental research techniques:
Anatomical demonstrations lay the groundwork for more in-depth learning in the Gross Anatomy Lab and its associated courses.
Our labs take science learning well beyond Bunsen burners and
beakers. In addition to standard lab equipment and supplies, our
students work with high-quality digital microscopes that display
what’s under their lenses as a live video feed. An entire
class can see the same specimen, examining and discussing it
together. Five-headed microscopes facilitate small-group
collaborative learning, with groups of students working with
These systems let you capture video and images directly for
later use as study aids and inclusion in research projects.
Additionally, our digital
video distribution system lets faculty broadcast images from
one classroom into others.
